Approving Posts & Comments

Kidblog's content management features have been designed to provide a flexible and efficient workflow for teachers to help their students publish their posts and comments safely for an authentic audience. 

When posts and comments are set to require teacher approval, the teacher will need to okay this content before it is visible to an audience.

1.) Approving Posts

When viewing the list of posts in the class, the orange audience (Teacher) and darker background of the tile indicates that this post was published by a student but has a pending audience that requires teacher approval.

The teacher can view the post or click the current audience, which brings up a popup that the teacher can use to approve or change the pending audience. 

The pending audience which the student requested is pre-selected. If the teacher clicks "Publish" that audience request will be granted, and the post will be published.

The teacher may also select a broader audience than the student was able to request. For example, the teacher and student may decide that this post deserves to be available to a Public audience. In this case, the teacher simply approves the audience requested by the student, and its new audience is reflected in the list of posts for the class.

 

Bulk Approving Posts

To approve and publish posts in bulk, switch to the "List" view using the options at the upper right corner of the post list. This exposes checkboxes that allow teachers to manage content in bulk. Select the posts you want to approve and click "Edit" at the top of the list. Then use the popup to manage multiple posts at one time.

 

 

2.) Approving Comments

When viewing the list of comments in the class, the orange audience (Teacher) and darker background of the tile indicates that this comment was published but is pending teacher approval.

 

To approve a comment, simply click the "Approve" link.
